We also ordered the garlic-crusted chicken. Now, this isn’t a dish we would’ve picked off the menu, but here’s another sign of a great restaurant: the servers are actually helpful. When we asked for a recommendation, our server suggested the garlic-crusted chicken, and though the dish sounds simple, it was flavorful and fantastic– not at all oily or greasy. It was a perfectly balanced dish.
We’re big fans of all things duck, so the other dish we ordered was not such a hard decision. We got the drunken noodles (flat rice noodles with Thai basil, tomato, chili garlic, and kai lan) with duck. It was unbelievably satisfying. This place knows how to go easy on the sauce and let the flavors of the meat and veggies be the star.
We can definitely see this place becoming a Comic-Con tradition. Rama is located at 327 Fourth Ave, San Diego and their website is http://www.ramarestaurant.com/ .
